About This Item

Paris, 1888. Fine. Paris 1888, 18x23cm, relié. - Manuscrit intitulé ""La Porcelaine de Chine"" orné de nombreux dessins originaux in et hors-texte en noir et en couleurs réalisés à même la page, sur de fins morceaux de papier de Chine contrecollés dans le texte ou sur des planches isolées de papier fort. L'exemplaire est également truffé d'une planche provenant du Costume historique de Racinet (1888) ainsi que d'une page imprimée de ce même texte. Il s'agit d'un recueil factice réalisé d'après plusieurs textes : Octave de Sartel, La Porcelaine de Chine (1881), Stanislas Julien, Histoire et fabrication de la porcelaine chinoise (1856), Maurice Paléologue, L'Art chinois (1887) et Louis Figuier, Les Merveilles de l'industrie (1873). Une dernière partie sur les bronzes chinois provient également de L'Art chinois de Paléologue. Tous les dessins sont réalisés d'après les illustrations des ouvrages sus-mentionnés et très souvent rehaussés à l'aquarelle. L'intégralité du manuscrit a été réalisé à l'encre noire, sur du papier quadrillé, d'une écriture fine et soignée. Reliure de l'époque en demi chagrin marron, dos à cinq nerfs richement orné, encadrement de multiples filets à froid sur les plats de cartonnage, gardes et contreplats de papier peigné, tête dorée sur témoins. Coins émoussés et dos un peu frotté. Une table des matières se trouve à la fin du volume. Rarissime et très importante synthèse manuscrite des connaissances de l'art chinois à la fin du XIXème siècle, minutieusement réalisée et abondamment illustrée par un amateur éclairé. [ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Manuscript with original drawings and made up of two parts, ""Chinese Porcelain"" and ""Chinese Bronze"" Paris 1888 | 18 x 23 cm | contemporary half shagreen Manuscript entitled ""Chinese Porcelain"", with numerous original drawings in and hors texte, in black and white and color, some full-page on delicate bits of China paper and stuck in to illustrate text or on occasional leaves of thick paper. The text is also enriched with a plate from Racinet's Costume historique (1888), as well as a printed page from the same text. This is a made-up volume from several texts: Octave de Sartel, La Porcelaine de Chine (1881), Stanislas Julien, Histoire et fabrication de la porcelaine chinoise (1856), Maurice Paléologue, L'Art chinois (1887) and Louis Figuier, Les Merveilles de l'industrie (1873). One final part on Chinese bronze comes from Paléologue's L'Art chinois. All the drawings are after the illustrations in the above mentioned works, and are often heightened in watercolors. The entire manuscript is in black ink on squared paper, in a fine and careful hand. Contemporary half brown shagreen over paper boards, richly decorated spine in six compartments, multiple blind-ruled fillets to covers, marbled endpapers and pastedowns, top edge gilt. Corners bumped and a little rubbed. Table of contents at end. A very rare and important manuscript combining studies of Chinese art at the end of the 19th century, carefully executed and plentifully illustrated by a talented amateur.
